    Question Data Feed. Where do I begin
    I haven't found a post that starts at the BEGINNING.
    Can anyone be kind enough to get me started here? I have no idea where to begin and all the datafeed lingo sounds like gibberish. I would much appreciate a little hand holding.
    Thanks so much.

    you sign up to a program that offers a feed. (lots of posts about many merchants with feeds can be found here.)
    You learn how to integrate that feed into your site(s) (lots of posts about what people use in terms of software/languages)
    You learn ways to make your feed driven sites different/unique (lots of posts about doing that, a few with actual ideas as those are kept close to the vest by most)
    You learn who to avoid and who to listen to (How long do you think until mr anti-feed shows up ... that wascally ... err.... duck, I mean .. parrot [geez he's getting me mixed up already and he hasn't even posted] and his little toto ... I mean mike )

    There are a bunch of posts about terminology ... some more on good books to get started, others on hosts and ... well you get the idea.

    Less holding hands, more typing searches in to the search page here and you will do fine

    Been away, now I'm back. Not as much, but I'm back & starting from scratch. Where I was, was fantastic. Where I am now, less so. Things have changed, become harder. So have I. Game ON!!!
